The autodialer does not exist where the callers are. When you press 1, your call is routed to someone somewhere. Internet says the operators work from home and the autodialer rings their phone and they pick up and take the call. I cannot imagine what circumstances would make a person take that job.
I ask to be put on the do not call list, but before I can finish the question, the operator disconnects. These people are trained well. Any attempts to fish information out of them gets met with a disconnect. There is no way to call back either and you know nothing about them. Very frustrating.
Rob Cockerham posted a page about this very problem on his site. Rob's done a lot of great things for the Internet, including documenting many pranks and performing detailed scientific analysis of products in his kitchen. He's also become a consumer advocate of sorts, which is nice for us lay people because Rob has a bigger voice because he's been on TV and I think his name is on the Internet more prominently than mine.
Anyways, Rob is having the same trouble I'm having trying to get any information about these people. So I'm posting on my tiny little blog that 4.5 people read (maybe).
I've received calls that claim to be from the following numbers:
954-691-9656If you're receiving calls about extended car warranties and you have any additional information, please post here. I'm trying to find out who the company is.
If you are being annoyed by these calls, try to have some fun with them. Start giving out any of the above phone numbers as ways to contact you, but be sure to tell people you are extension 1. The only way to try to get information from these people is to talk the operator about the offer. Be sure to give them a fake car, possibly even several. Say you have 20 cars or 20000 cars. But be sure to pick old ones. Like a 1953 Nash Rambler or a 1965 International Harvester Scout or a 1954 BMW Isetta.
